Glydways came to me with a design for their website, but no direction with how they wanted to code it. After recommending that we use WordPress, we decided on purely static HTML because the deadline for the project was two weeks.
I built the site based on a design they already had, with a static site generator called Jekyll. The site is hosted on an Amazon S3 bucket (not even a web server), which has some limitations, but allows for simple HTML to be rendered.
The main issues they face is that any time an update needs to be done, they have to go through me. Even something as simple as a text update. So, we’re currently in the process of migrating the site over to WordPress which will allow for easy content updates, and marketing initiatives to be easier to execute.
What Glydways is Saying
I sought out Kegan to develop our site based on our design. The site design involved multiple landing pages, motion graphics, photo carousels, and embedded video content, as well as a contact sheet. The project had an extremely aggressive timeline - (about 16 days, including weekends.) Kegan was a 1-man army, however it felt like I was working with a fully-staffed dev firm.
